Secrets of Success: Building Community Through Meetups

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OpenStack Cloud Computing is much more than technology. It’s a community. And our community wasn’t built by accident! Building and growing this amazing group has been a result of the very deliberate efforts of some extremely dedicated people, as well as crucial community tools like GitHub, IRC, Stack Overflow, Google Hangout, and Twitter. Great OpenStack meetups are powerful. They foster a collaborative, inclusive environment, focused on important issues to the developers and users who make OpenStack tick.

In this continuation of a talk that began at OpenStack Summit Austin, hear what’s made four of the leading meetup organizers in the U.S. so successful. We’ll cover the logistics of having sponsors as speakers; address budget constraints, explore the pros and cons of streaming live meetups, talk about how to diversify your meetups and community, and answer all of your burning questions.
